"Talking to matt rosenberg. The book is what next chicago and you were just sharing something. We had to go to the break. So keep talking there right. I had been downtown at a concert. Looking at the beautiful skyline friend said to me this is the beauty of chicago the brilliance of it and i agreed with him but then i wondered how many people died this weekend. How many people got shot. It turned out to be jost fifty-six shot and nine killed in the sad part. Eric was it. I realize that was a good weekend for chicago. The duality of chicago is that brilliant minds have always lived there that most people are warm open hearted generous spark capable and accomplished. Our universities are great. Our architecture is dramatic. The neighborhoods are great. The culture is fantastic. And yet and yet it's become an unlivable Greatly miss governed place so ads.

Border Crisis Sparks Calls for Change in Immigration Policy
"June twenty first two thousand nineteen jv pritzker signs measure to help protect illegal immigrants in illinois governor jv pritzker in june of two dozen nineteen signed three bills designed to protect illegal immigrants in illinois that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from coordinating with federal immigration authorities. Pritzker sign the keeping illinois families together. Act which prohibits local law enforcement from coordinating with immigration customs enforcement. Now this was two years ago. Why am i mentioning this. Because you have blue states by the way this is one of thirty examples of blue states that have been signing laws that prohibit police officers and local sheriffs in da's from coordinating with federal officials. That's an act of secession. That's an act of nullification saying we don't want any part of this. Federal compact and we as republicans and conservatives sat idly by like. Oh yeah that's bad. Let's keep going to the courts they've been ignoring the courts and ignoring the laws for years. And so then when one point eight million illegals come into the country to change the country permanently by the way what do we do. We beg joe biden for help. So what are the democrats do when things start to trend in a direction. They don't like they take action. The democrats have the willingness to reshape. Destroy the country. Republicans are getting there now. Some people emailed us and they said well. Charlie couldn't joe biden nationalize the national guard. It is very rare to do so usually only done with the consent of the governor and prayer pet presidents have rarely federalized a state or territory guard without the consent of the governor in the wake of hurricane katrina president. George w bush declined to take control of the louisiana's national guard due to the objection of governor kathleen blanco. But this is such an easy thing. First of all joe biden can't nationalize state troopers. Secondly he can't nationalize texas rangers. Thirdly the governor of texas would say i'm sorry what did you design a piece of paper. There's still our national guard. They're not gonna listen to you federalized nationalize i mean federalize. And so what should have been done. And what's still can be done. Is every single. Texas ranger national guard member state trooper that can be allocated should be deployed to the southern border with handcuffs and arrest authority and charter flights.

Classroom Posters at Hamilton High School Spark Controversy; LA Unified School District Issues Response
"School a high school in california where they have posters. This is the alexandra. Hamilton high school in los angeles unified school. So all william unified school district where they have posters which say want jennifer. Oh my gosh sabbath. This high school part of the la unified school district. Hamilton high has all kinds of terrible posters. Got the american flag lying on the ground. Let me read you the list of what they have. Because i don't want get this wrong. They have a palestine flag. They have a transgender flag. A pride flag. A black lives matter flag all hung prominently from the blackboard. According to some photos that were taken undercover a few parents rights groups. Got a hold of this. And they blew the whistle on this high school. The american flag while all of those other flags are hanging up in a nice prime location flung across furniture in the classroom now after they found out about this because it started to get some attention and traction on twitter with some parents groups who were thankfully appalled and this is part of the pushback in california even at the smallest level. It's coming for more parents. Getting involved with their kids classroom. Some parents groups called out l. unified. And you would think that they would say oh. We had no idea this was going on. We would remedy this situation sam. La unified school district. They knew about it and they said that they would make sure that the posters would be taken down now. Here's the problem. You've you've left out two of the posters. Oh go ahead. Sorry the police. Oh after police unleaded. Forget the america with kkk. Instead of the sea on the wall of the classrooms then on the wall of the classroom. And here's the thing and you're right. I should have said that. I because as almost more disturbing than what. They're hanging up everywhere. But here's the problem. It's not the posters. It's not the flags. It's the fact that this is who's teaching our kids. Forget about what they hang on the wall that can come up. It can come down and they can take it down now. Put a back up in two weeks. But what in the heck are they teaching our children and this is the problem with the la unified school district. And i'm gonna guess most school districts around the country that have allowed themselves to become infiltrated by the unions. The unions are now operatives for the socialist movement in this country. They are incredibly powerful in the political sphere members. Pay into this i. I've heard people on my program. And i'm going to employ people across the country if you are a teacher or if you are a person who works for a union take advantage of your rights and get out of the union if they are using the money to support political causes better not important to

Ep3: Pain Is The Agent Of Change Director Tristien Marcellous Winfree - burst 2
"One of your interviewee is mentions that everyone's going through something. And I think people need to understand if you're meeting people on the street. We're talking with some of they've gone through stuff. Like I've gone through things. I'm sure lose Tristan you mentioned you've got through your own grief as well. And with American society, I think American society in general, I think there is there needs to be more conversation about going to therapy, talking about things that are not very comfortable and what are things that society should be saying. What should we be talking about and should be made more aware? Society. Yeah. You know, you know, we live in a culture where everything is so fast paced and we're so, you know, what are you feeling? You know what I mean? You got to get money. You know what I mean? Next thing, you know what I mean? It's so it's so bad because when we see some of our favorites, you know what I mean fall down and we say, wow, they were so kids saying signs of this early on, but we chose not to see that. You know what I mean? I see that person. And I always say, like you said earlier, we meet people. Everyone's gonna be dealing with something. And I think that in this world, everybody, you need to be kind. Point blank period. You have to leave the kindness and all that. So you know, I know it's a hard thing to do to do in the world, but you need to kind of, you know, you'll be on the right path and all that. And as far as the world of itself, then what conversations that we have the better. What I'm wearing this in front of the audience. Everybody stood up at the end. It just started hunting on one another. Why? Because it's that common thing that we go through as people. You know what I mean? You still be able to really talk about okay, yes, I want to do that challenge a theme. I'm like, how did I overcome that by doing XYZ? You know what I mean? And I didn't think I was like, you know, as a self that's crazy or, you know, like, you know, you're crazy if you ask for help. Everybody needs to help. Yeah, and it's definitely a very important, especially disorder. We're all going through something. So now, but as far as the artist's part, right? You are, we're dealing with our own issues. And then we put on top of that, our creativity. How do you do that? Specifically, this documentary, you said, okay, so I was asking other questions and then he led to something else. That has creativity sparking, right? And you're saying, okay, maybe I have something bigger than I thought. How do you deal with that in the sense because it is at the very difficult theme to talk about with people and you're not sure if they're going to be open to share. So how do you deal with that in your creative approach? Well, it's so interesting that you say that because while I was interviewing them, you know, my grief was still fresh in my own. Correct. So while I was interviewing them, I'm like, geez, I'm still unpacking myself and here I am receiving things from other people. And I'm like, I have to take a couple I have to take about a week or so apart from each interview because I'm like, you know, all I talk about some heavy stuff and then now I gotta edit it while I'm editing my short film and it was like, it was filled with stuff made emotional roller coaster for me, but it was that theme to what I knew single handedly that it was in divine order that I was doing the right thing with this project. You know what I mean? And I think for me, the biggest thing was just like sitting back and knowing that Michael okay. This is bigger than me. You know what I mean? My project is bigger than me. It's documentary is bigger than me. And to be able to teach with it in people to see it and feel something, that's what it is. That's what it's about. Right. And it's not something that you're doing. Do you have to sort of detach yourself from your own feelings or maybe you got more into that in order to be able to finish this documentary? I'm curious, I'm a curious person. So I definitely leaned into myself a little bit more about why does the person feel that way or can we go back, you know, the technology and see what happened to our specific time and all that. Yeah, it's just intuitive and me to just like, you know, lead with my body and the heart. Definitely. And I think that's what we have, right? I left at the end. So creativity is our voices just making stuff that it's important to us and that we want to share. So as far as that, we got to bring back something a little lighter. So you said you were doing your film and the documentary at the same time. A lot of filmmakers out there are season filmmakers but there are others that are starting out like I mentioned. So in that sense, tell us more about the process with that. You're doing two projects at the same time, but one of them came out before. And now you have something that you're working. What is the process as far as the production part of it? About at least what you encounter. Yeah, you know, so I'm very grateful for my short film team because when I sat down with each and every one of them, you know, they, you know, what my vision was, single handedly, you know what I mean? So grateful for that. Now, when I was in the editing room by myself for my documentary, it was just me, I didn't have anyone to turn to our go to look too. So it was kind of like it was kind of like a home therapy session in itself. And, you know, you walk through this project and I know that I've mentioned that, you know, we did with the 5 stages of three, you know, bargaining and like acceptance and the value that depression and all those other ones. And the people were talking, but I didn't set up the questions. Like, okay, let's talk about arguing, you know what I mean? Those things just like naturally just like the conversation. And as I was piecing together, this documentary, I was like, huh. Here we are. Talking about the acceptance of something, or the denial of something. And so, you know, my process was very, you know, blindness on and, you know, just getting very articulate about what it is that we want to share when we talk about green. And as far as your festival run so that you completed those two films, as far as being on the festival and screening your stuff, what was your process? The what you do in anything prior to the pandemic as far as that screening your film places and now how has that differ from what you're doing now with the documentary because it might be a little different, right? Yeah, no, it's definitely different nowadays. So the film now the documentary is precious news. So it's definitely been a submitted to customers right now. So it hasn't had its own chance to shine this yet. But the part is the short film pain that's done like an extraordinary job being out since 2019 and being part of your festival in Chicago filmmakers and stony island arts bank and, you know, I get to teach with it and my students get to see it and watch it and we talk about process making and, you know, real health business it's like each, you know, the mediums that I teach on is just I'm thankful for it. You were talking to us about your also a T-shirt. And you also, you work with these you say middle school or elementary school kids? So I work with court theater and we teach our students on the south side of Chicago and also work with tape, which is, you know, Chicago partners, education team, and we work on a west side of Chicago. Well, with middle school students. And I know this right now we're talking about how it is to juggle work and life. And then still try to do creative stuff. I think this would say something about filmmakers that they really get. It gets to them that they have to work more than doing creative stuff. And unfortunately, how do you juggle that? Because I know, you know, like you said, we have to make a living, you know? Yeah. But we also need to be creative in order to help our minds in order to help that creativity. So in your experience, how have you dealt with that within the years? Well, you know, tied before this whole pandemic thing happened. You know, it needs to be a key holder at a store called the tag bar, you know, have to wear like, you know, suits and jackets, people love and all that. And when, you know, this thing happening, you know, I couldn't be in front of people anymore. I had to hop into my teaching bag. Really, and it really just brought out the best in me because my life is, you know, built around passionate purpose, you know what I mean? And when those two things are ignited in me, it's like, okay, I can get paid for actually teaching what I know. You know what I mean? And also teaching to children that, you know, who are curious about, you know, about filmmaking and health stories get told and all that. So to have all the insight and knowledge, you know, lose, listen, I'm not gonna go too crazy. You know, all these gifts. Right, but you have to put it out there, especially for the younger generation, right? Yeah, you definitely got to put it out there because, you know, what we do as artists is. Generosity, you know what I mean? It's a public service, what we do. Sometimes we don't see the millions of jewels and sometimes we do. You know what I mean? But you get the stories out there and sell it. And the most audacity right, right? I mean, I think it is great because just to be able to get back, like you said, we have to be nice, you know? That is really what we should all follow all the time kindness. Regardless of anything, that's the first thing that comes in. And to be able to give that back like you said you're working short films, you're working on documentaries

China background statistic computing and nowadays we focus on forecasting ways a lot of skill of data on distributed systems. So i haven't yet had the chance to interview anyone specifically about distributed time-series. It seems like that would be some extra challenges because the data sequential what happened before relates to what happens next. How can you spread that across. Many machines disputed hampshire is is just time is that alcohol. it can't be billions of observations. Historically we build up statistical models based on assumptions the narrative and other assumptions those assumptions do not work on distributed system and the industry like apache spark actually defacto standard for data processing and the the street people star a huge amount of data on distributed systems.

Yes spark is naturally a good choice to us because it's such a good reputation and a lot of reasons to look at it for big data solutions. But it's not obvious to me that it's necessarily the right choice for time series because it's not really baked in right. They've moved more and more towards like a sequel style and data sets. Are there any technical challenges to implementing time series via spark. And if you consider all single time that's fine but if you think about what we are doing we are streaming tate.

Her husband watched as she tore through the pages for vacation reading her. No stuck in a book while they sat on a beautiful greek island. Finally he spoke up and suggested that if she liked to reading so much maybe she should write a book herself has she may took his words to heart and began minding her own. Family's history and heritage for stories this resulted in multiple bestsellers. All set in afghanistan like the pearl that broken shell and the house without windows in her newest novel. Sparks lake stars nadia. She combined personal family history with indepth research to stunning effect. Hashimi is passionate about telling the story of afghanistan and it's people particularly highlighting the years before nine. Eleven she recounts that the story. She grew up hearing about the country bear. Little resemblance to the modern image. Much of the world has about afghanistan. The stories has she me once heard of her parents. Afghanistan were set during a time when afghan culture was thriving and progressive in her writing. Hashimi hopes to create a more nuanced understanding of the country. She loves and when that she views in her words as a survivor victimized by colonialism imperialism the cold war and at times by her own people and her goal and sparks like stars with to explore. How a country. That wants inspired. Wanderlust could have tipped into decades of war in turmoil. Well the characters in the story are fictional. the inciting event that launches the story is very real in nineteen seventy eight a pro communist coup in afghanistan known as the saur revolution alter the trajectory of the country's future the coup resulted in the assassination of progressive president dude along with the execution of his family and other palace officials. This shift in power set. The stage for soviet intervention casting afghanistan is upon and the cold war and greatly altering the country's political and cultural landscape to make sense of the past and too closely examined this important. Turning point in afghanistan's history. I saw me began her research relying on testimony from president diets grandson who survived the coup and documentation from witnesses and us diplomats serving in kabul. The time as she began to contemplate her novel. Hashimi was intrigued by the concept of a sole surviving child and she borrows this historical reality to tell her. Otherwise fictional story which unfolds through the eyes of ashim as character sitara a younger living in the palace at the time of the coup. The first person narration draws the reader in making them feel as though they're experiencing events in real time right along with the main character.

"Because it you know it takes a lot of stamina's we've seen with the documentary for for to take three years of his life to focus on. This obviously has other projects to that. He's working on but to focus for three years and to have a a group of people focus for that long on one on one project it's pretty astounding to find people that are that can That that have that kind of stamina and then it happened. You know with this movie musical a net that we've done were. It's been eight years of work on on that project to get to see the light of day and so for to be even given the chance to be the opening some of the canned film festival if nothing happens with the movie were. We're happy that that's that that's that even that's enough for us. That's it's pretty amazing so two quick questions. first one is to ron. What are you when you look back at everything. What are you most proud of. What are you most proud of that. Sparks has done well. I think just the idea that we've been able to continue Without feeling like we're slumming to do pop music at our at this stage. I am proud that were able to kind of go into the studio even now and do pop music without it seeming like somebody that's detached from from the passion of doing that of music. I mean other people might feel we have no right to be doing data this stage but that this is what we do and this is the kind of music that we love so to be able to be able to make that kind of music and kind of explore off are you can take pop music for that long. A time is something that that you know. I'm just. I'm incredibly proud. You know even aside from however anybody judges the the quality of of what's being done just the idea that it from our own Standpoint rebels honestly do do pop music at this stage in. Most people aren't able to do that that they feel if they have to be more reflective and kind of more Shooter their age in a certain sense. Okay learn never true to our age last question and i'll start with edgar. It'll be really quick edwards. Got a eggert got jumped by the way last night in soho. I just want to tell people. I'm very excited about edgar. This is going to be. I'm very excited about that movie. Listen we're we're we're this is where we really come together as a unit is that we both have to movies coming out this year. Last question to sleep saw planned last question to start with griff. You have to jump. Because i think you have another thing. Then go ahead and jump and i'll email you later but I just wanna get one last little chunk of wisdom from everyone starting with that group for people who are in the artistic struggle.

"I haven't been back to the state since i haven't been to sit a with ron and russell watches crazy. Listen edgar let me just pitch this idea because you know things are going very well for you. Have this movie coming out last night. And so if you could just by the cinerama dome we could. It's available now. You could just go watch it. There is that a unreasonable. Just come on. Come on. And i think people on on twitter underestimate how much money i have. How can you say no to wait. Wait they overestimate the overestimates right. I roam it's like. Witnessing ramadan thing happened suddenly people said hey. Can you not just by sitting around within the hollywood like yes. I have tens of millions of la real estate money to and and operating capital. Yes good tax deduction though so you know that's not a bad idea. That's not a bad idea. I i mean i listen. Everyone loves the movie and rightfully. So it's it's so good. This movie is so. It's artistically inspirational. But just i love it. It's just you know. Even though the movie has its ups and its downs. It just feels good like the movie just feels good does it does it. Is that how you perceive the story yourself a greg. Why i guess part of the inspiration for it was the Having so band. I kind of like you know like it like a superfan fan when you five suddenly like very aware response what they look like and what they sound like and then of over the years being so of an ongoing kind of like turning into like a long light fan obsession. I think like one of the reasons. I wanted to make the documentaries. I felt that run russell in this century since two thousand Beethoven had so just kind of like flying in the face of the trajectory of any other band. Been going that long. I can think of anybody else that was like he was bringing out new material so regularly that was as good as if not better than the in big embiid inverted commas golden period. I think we did like. I think it's fair to say. I'm gonna speak on behalf. They don't like to think of a goto period because of all goethe's so so to me. That was the thing that was amazing is but most like bands going through slowing russell. Have i feel that will run. A rustling been doing is to be loaded too so keep kind of pushing the boats out like keep doing what they wanna do. And just saying to the audience catch up and i think that's something that most bands don't do that to nevis kinda lose an audience at russell have ever done that. All not like Liberals you know well. I wonder also because you know if you're so tied to a result of something where you know it's like oh i guess we live or die by this thing whether we lose a thing or get a thing. Then you probably are in a constant state of fear to try new things. But ron and russell you constantly even even when stuff succeeds ugo. While i. we can't do that again. we have to. We have to keep moving forward and exploring. And.

"You have any songs. So i had a song that i thought was pamela. Bellwood underground penta song and then that was kinda turned into beat the car which kind of sounds a hundred degrees away from from the velvet underground song but the court structures. Not sort of simple. Kind of thing twin. Things hit a particularly low ebb commercially And especially in the late eighties and that whole period in the film represented by a touching moment of crying over your temporary Low point. How did you feel about that or are you sort of impervious. Because you're always just carrying on no matter what well i mean during the that period despite you know it was really a touching moment. Christiane having her emotional moment thinking about you know looking at in a way looking after are being concerned about our wellbeing but the flipside of it is we. We were at that time. Also working on the movie musical project with tim burden that didn't get off the ground. Unfortunately but we spent probably two way too much time working on several years so so you know there was creative stuff going on. Despite whatever any any other considerations there was creative stuff so despite that we kinda you know again like something that edgar managed to convey so well in the documentary that through thick and thin. The only thing we can control is just what we do creatively and so we just steamed ahead and obviously it's more fun to be working when things are going well but but then i think something had also comes across in the documentaries that maybe there's those times when things are really difficult. That's when you kinda say we gotta find a way to crawl out of his soul. And that's when you do your best work. So i think there's both sides to the story when you have a band who has sounded like so many different things you know egger. You're that thing of people asking. I think what sparked album should you start with and it was very very difficult to answer when people ask me that i have to come back with because there's no one's spock's album that kind of tells the whole story but in five you can still get the shape of it i once asked David fricke the legendary rolling stone writer. What sparks album. I should recommend to someone who is asking me what to recommend because i was also overwhelmed and he said. Tell them to get all of them. Essay writer boys man. I said that's not very helpful. But i will pass that on but for two of you. Is there a core moment. Is there a moment that through all of it. And maybe it's even recent or maybe it doesn't exist at all where it's like. This is the essence sparks. Was there ever a moment like that. Maybe it's an insane question. I don't know yeah. I mean i. I don't think that there is. I think maybe dave fricks comment is kind of more appropriate where it's like you gotta you know. They're they're all valid there. They're all that there isn't one some some albums have like some maybe sentimental value more than others for what was surrounding it at the time you know. The uk with cohen white house is the first album. Was this big breakthrough. Farrah's within there were similar. Times like in germany with with the gratuitous sax out more we had a really big hit twenty years after komo to my house. And we're having kids that are you know. Thirteen year old girls and fourteen kids screaming at the ban twenty years after the time that they screamed in london Thing in in the eighties in los angeles word is different areas. So there's different periods that have special meaning and the album's also have a special meeting but to pick one or another that encapsulates. Everything i think it's you know it is really difficult. You need at least the five. That ed you're said but i'd lean even further to lead to david fricks. Get them all. Would you agree that it does say a lot about sparks that when you began your collaboration with france ferdinand you sent them a track called collaborations. Don't work yeah. I mean i think it was a a good touch of lyrically for that. Ron did and and alex capron says from franz ferdinand in the document i think he says it in the documentary. This was coming from sparks. This kind of set the tone of like okay. This is gonna be a challenge the working together and and then they came and they He sent back his section of that song which was kind of his rebuttal to our challenge in him. Saying i know collaborator in again. It's one of those things. Edgar edgar mentioned about the for a split second stepping outside of the thing and commenting that collaborations. Don't work it's talking about you know as a situation that that the song is actually you know doing. The song is collaborating but also commenting on that and so is kind of. Has this outside character. Looking in on it in com- commenting on on the situation. So i think it obviously took a bam like franz ferdinand alex sensibility kinda grasp that sort of concept and not be Not being something offensive or something. And he's on the contrary that it kind of just. It was the spirit of both bands so in line that that was well. Well received nations from this experience.

"In the wrote the melody. The melody played that actual melody now on on out and so i had to sing that. And whatever key ron written it and we didn't even you know we just. We don't have big board meetings or anything. He wrote it in that key. See got sing it in that key and we didn't know until you know forty years later that there's a thing called transposing where you can change the key of a song and so it just so happened that that melody was in a high range you know and it was on a question of well. Can you sing it. You know you have to sing it. Because that's how i wrote it and it wasn't you know it wasn't a dispute. I liked just saying it know. It's high singing and a lot of the songs. have that high singing and kind of i think so. A lot of the style of the singing falsetto stuff and always just kind of shaped by the type of songs that ron was writing and then in hindsight it becomes kind of you know the style that that you do a lot of singers. Comfortable working russell. Morley uncomfortable is just a lot of singers kind of use. The basic song as kind of the jumping off point. They're amazing technical prowess but there's kind of a greater prowess too being able to really convey the essence of a song. Purely i think. And so the songs that we we have or are really strict in their in their melodic form. And it's important that they not be kind of I dunno i wait to use the term jobs. Up kind of fooled around with and and kind ed A place for a demonstration of of vocal athletics. That that russel is kind of beyond all those needs to to do what what they do on. America's got talent or something where everyone is showing how you may be but but there's a greater talent to be able to sing something really purely in and and well but also convey like his own personality in the song you know that that's kind of pretty sounding with the songs are generally really hard to sing. It's like when edgar writes script. He doesn't want his words altered by his act. He wants them to you. say it. i'm putting words into his mouth. but maybe it is true. Identity of improv. It's like you write a script so people could say the word meant they were meant to be. I was going to say about the transposing. You didn't go until forty years later that you could transpose it to lower key taylor. Swift is currently recording her entire back catalogue. You could do the same and that could be another twenty five hours without having to write. Anything is just like dude. Like sparks in lower key is an another run but you know it actually sounds different when it's not just the same equivalent when you lower stephan that something that you know sort of proud of is that when we play live the songs are still in the original key because you know when you get older your the vocal range tends to shrink physiological thing and you have to really work at it to fight against that happening but a lot of times. You'll hear artist. You don't know why the song why is it. Sound a little bit different than than the original end sometimes just lowering it by a couple of semi tones and it loses. Its thing you know and so so it's not just the same Transposing something upper down. Just give credit to russell like solve. I mean the first time. I saw you guys live which wasn't until two thousand fifteen when my main takeaways from saying it was like man. Russell can really sing like he did decades ago. It's astonishing and that she is just putting the soundtrack album together and there is a little bit where i just put to live tracks together. One from nine. Seventy five and one from two thousand and seventeen and it's like the same voice and that's amazing and that's a credit to how hard you russell off. Thank you very kind. i'm panicked. We have a tour next year. And gotta keep it up. That's why the tour got delayed by a by a year. So you kinda go. Oh my god. Can i still say in a year from now. Maybe talk talk about just queen do seem to be some kind of musical third cousin. Occasionally there's occasional echoes and you can see on line people debate whether they took some influence from you or if it's just a coincidence or obviously you saw something because you knew that brian may could work with you. How how do you see that if it off. Yeah i mean i don't know there's certain sensibilities i guess in between queen and and sparks. Even you know would so you know i. I don't know we with brian. May specifically i mean we. We liked him as a guitar player. And so and we knew the style that he also was in with his band and so just at that time. We were looking for a guitar player so we thought why not. Why not go after somebody that you think is you. You think is good as guitar player in and had the image down to so. I think it's hard for us to talk about you. Know any comparisons between sparks and queen because people can make their own assertion assumptions about. Who was there you know what the connection between the bands. but it's. It's really hard for us to do that. Dr have jack. Antonoff would forests in and check dates guys stocks first album seventy-one cranes nine seventy three check. The that's why myself. I will say one thing on the flip side like i know brian may and when i mentioned to brian may that i was doing this documentary. The first thing that he said is he said. I love spokes. He goes those guys and real musicians that was like the first thing he said that was very sweet and then he said he has yes he is a friend of mine just saw them live. This was getting he said and he said that. Just amazing so that was the second thing he said. So there's no love lost okay. We love hearing that story. It's all love editor to take it back to the movie itself or second. The film uses many of the tropes of a standard music documentary but never really feels like a standard music documentary. Were there things that you want to avoid or just techniques you use to keep it feeling it uses talking heads but it never feels like that plotting rhythm of of the very bog. Standard music documentary. Yeah i mean. I was so conscious of that like i said. I wanted to be slightly self reflexive in the sense that it was so poking fun at the format the same time. So you know with like jokes led the the chirons under people's names and sometimes it's kind of pretty silly and and that just seemed to be in the spirit of the band of kind of run wrestle..
"sparks" Discussed on Rolling Stone Music Now
"Hey i'm brian hiatt this rolling stone music now. There's absolutely fantastic. New music documentary out now called the sparks and it is of course about the band sparks and it's directed by the great edgar right known for everything from baby driver to shaun of the dead in the thing about sparks is that they are very difficult to describe a ban that has transcended eras and genres. Like perhaps no other but to help us understand. We have with us for today's episode. Ron and russell mail from sparks and edgar great. We're gonna talk about their whole career and about that documentary which is a extremely unique and again excellent rock documentary. So let's hear all three of these guys introduce themselves and we'll get right to the conversation. This is ron mail from sparks. And i'm russell mail from sparks and i'm edgar right not from sparks and thanks again to all three of you for being here. This is an exceptional opportunity. I hope everyone listening realize how special this is. But i guess i would start by asking something of edgar the biggest thing i took away from this documentary which i just love was a lesson that that's larger really than music and may even be larger than art but i was thinking for anyone with a creative career or anyone who just wants to keep going. The message seems to be allowed. A slit go blank. Have the courage to start over and you can move forward and go far beyond what anyone could imagine a curious if you kind of took that message yourself as a creative person both from making the documentary and just from what. These guys have achieved over the years. I guess not something that i necessarily learned from the documentary but more something that i was very impressed by before i even met running. Russell was if there was a seat of the inspiration for the documentary is because i've been following spouse career for many many years and then particularly in the last twenty years i was confounded. How they seem to be getting better and more ambitious and more resilient and and in a way. That was this part of the inspiration for doing the documentaries. I just felt that it was. I think just a an inspiration for any other artist of a way to sort of proceed and less. I guess it's a thing where like there's no there's no artistic failure in trying janetta main is like so in our. I guess there's no wrong ons. And i said that i thought was amazing about spouts work and also i think for the rest of watching. The documentary is pretty much throughout the entire film. Even with albums at the time seem to make zero dense in like guys in a big way always have their passionate defenders. Russell found a very amazing to see flee talking at length on nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy seven's introducing sparks now one of the biggest exams and i think that's the thing is that you know you can get kinda down in expectation. This is the same with films you could get bogged down in expectations and let that kind of light. Run your life or you could just make what you want to make. As funny i was i was talking. And this is a similar vein. Actually widely had dinner last night with bill. Pope who was the cinematographer on sco program and we were talking about the response to that film. And i said i said i'm sure the money managers judy. I wanna hear this. But i take. Its current coats decided over it. Being a hit ten years ago now that might be controversial to say. But like i like the warm and the growing affection for the movie more the idea of it being a hit ten years ago and then people getting tired of it. Now for ron russell. Is that something that feeling something you can relate to. Oh absolutely obviously everybody wants to have. you know. you'd rather be like by more people than fewer people. But i mean it's sort part of the thesis i think in edgar's documentary is that we always wanted to do things under our own terms and so if there's an audience for that than grade all the better but if there isn't the failure may be as a necessarily our fault you know we. We did what we felt was creatively the right thing to do and anyone period and that that's the only way we know how to work we an if we tried to kinda mold what we're doing to try to reach more people. We would fail miserably at that anyway and then you have nothing. You don't have your own credibility in tact you've lost the essence of what you're all about and so i think that that that whole point that will argument is really is really true you know and it just you know if more people want to hear what you're doing and it's on your own terms than so much the better but just to know in your mind that what you're doing is right for you and creatively right then at that point. It's out of your hands. You know we give it off to a record label and we can't do anything more about it you know in it either gets accepted or not and there's different circumstances in different periods of why things maybe are treated better you know and all that but at least the essence of it is is something you can stand behind and then at that point. It's up to the gods ron. How much of the constant evolution and transformations and longevity was sort of in your mind at the beginning. And how much was it. Just sort of the way. It all worked out. I mean i'd like to say it was a part of a bland but it wasn't. I mean when we when we add her first album out was originally called half nelson than the band was named chang score What was thought to be commercial reasons but you know we when we had done demos and we we were passionate about what we were doing but just have the an obviously wanted something long term every you know every starting musician does but the fact that we were signed to a label with that album. That really was enough. Were sent me. That was all we needed. And so the fact that we're here now and there's a documentary encapsulating. Five decades of stop is kind of surreal to us and Murray strange his there. There's no possible way that we would have imagined this from the beginning or or add any plan for it. I mean when when you're involved in a lot of those decisions that in hindsight i dunno iroha or whatever. A lot of times is discount of self preservation than you know. We don't have an option. We we really are are always constantly just doing things in there. You know there there never was really a thought of ever stopping but we never thought that that kind of energy that we put into things anything wrong. We just thought. That's that's what you do when we said that it was always your dream to be a british band before we get to the part when you move now. Of course that's not possible. Except you somehow made it possible you you're americans and my first reaction new standards. Is that what you can't be a british banyu but and yet you essentially became one. Can you unpack that a little bit. I it's just wild. Yeah he was our dream. You know we were ju- anglophiles. We loved british bands. Despite the fact that we live in la and it was kind of counter to the whole laurel canyon kind of seen That.
